Cody, Mrs. Henry E. (O'Brien) 1874-1921

Mrs. Henry E. Cody, wife of Henry E. Cody, telegraph editor of the 'Sioux City Journal', died Saturday night at the family residence, 919 Pierce street. The immediate cause of death was heart trouble, which developed serious phases about five weeks ago.

Following a protracted illness about 10 years ago, Mrs. Cody became partially invalided and had been a sufferer to some extent ever since that time. Her cheerful disposition, in the face of severe personal affliction, was a never ending source of wonder and admiration to her large circle of acquaintances in Sioux City.

Mrs. Cody was born at McGregor, Iowa, September 1, 1874 and came to Sioux City when 15 years of age. She was married to Mr. Cody October 5, 1896. Surviving members of the family additional to the husband, are a daughter, Miss Evarista; two sisters, Mrs. W.J. Flanagan, of Sioux City, and Mrs. H. Hogan, of Covington, Ky.; three brothers, W.S. O'Brien, of Ogden, Utah, John D. O'Brien and Emmet O'Brien of San Francisco. In spite of physical handicap, Mrs. Cody had been among the most active of the women workers of the Cathedral parish. She was a member of the Co-fraternity of the Blessed Sacrament, St. Monica's guild and other Catholic societies. Funeral services were held at the Cathedral Monday morning at 9 o'clock. Interment was in Mt. Calvary cemetery.
